  • Everyone should go out of their way to visit this museum. The passion of the owner and curator, Zaid Abbou, who has been collecting the artefacts for 40 odd years comes through and is a wonderful host...  more »
  • We had a great time in the company of Zaid, artist and philosopher as passionate and exciting. It is a stop not to miss out on the desert road.

  • The backpacker described a favorite place. The time spent in the Museum of the Sources has been magical. The cool, clear water arising in the middle of the stones, ethnographic treasures amassed by Zaid, buildings cutting off views of the surrounding mountains, a curious mix of tinted Berber civilization of Japan (the empty and the full, the) calligraphy) makes this place full of poetry and serenity... Thank you. Arielle

  • The visit took us 1 hour but it was worth 3 centuries of time travelling while seeing all the collected materials Mr Zaid exposed and gave back somehow to life. Located in the middle of a rocky island, the view of bubbling water is just awesome 😊
  • superb. Stop there, Zaid is a fantastic host
  • Very nice, very rewarding visit. I recommend it to you, we are left with a dessert rose offered by the owner of the premises. Nice touch.

  • Perhaps the most magical place, what I saw in Morocco. Art Gallery in the middle of anything, and in the middle of Zaid Abbou, madman, with these fools, which most need to appreciate who have vision and devote their lives to this vision a reality. Dreaming of a clean Morocco, cleared retrieved from the desert and built around it-an art gallery? The Museum? Unexpected meeting with Antoine'm de Saint-Exupery'm and Khalil Gibranem.

  • Zaid makes US discover his Morocco through an impressive collection of antique objects with passion. His approach to save the source of pollution is to be encouraged.
